Major Regional Hospital Chooses HCIN
Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, TN has joined the Health Care Interpreter Network (HCIN) in order to “improve services to patients, boost productivity and save money,” the medical center announced. VUMC is the leading academic hospital system in the mid-south region, and is nationally-ranked in numerous specialties. It boasts top-level centers for trauma, neonatal intensive care, and burn care.
Interpreter Services Manager Hope Collins, MPA commented: “I think what is unique about the solution we have chosen is that it works like a giant co-op of shared hospital interpreter resources. We like that model for several reasons.”
